The Week Magazine, May 2016

I was driving regularly between Oxford and London when I listened to this. Those long Latinate sentences with their knotty syntax and their subclauses like Russian nesting dolls require a lot of concentration. On a number of occasions I emerged from the poem to find myself driving at 70 mph on a busy motorway. Glorious. But do listen while walking or sitting. © 2016 The Week Magazine

Poetry must be included in any overview of an audiobook collection, and a representative item is Milton’s Paradise Lost, ready here by Anton Lesser. His reading style is eager, light, dramatic and quite fast—appropriate, it might be thought, considering that Milton’s Latinate style all too often tends in the opposite direction. Music is added here and there, and this version does a lot to make what might in other circumstances be a forbidding experience pleasant and congenial. © 2012 Taipei Times
